Fruit and vegetable market

Fruit and vegetable markets – Feiras Livres

Why not experience a fruit and vegetable market while you are staying in Rio de Janeiro? See all the lively street vendors in action and discover tropical fruits that you didn’t even know existed.

These open air markets are the best place in the city to buy fruits and vegetables, they travel around in Rio and are to find at fixed locations on fixed days.  Because of the competition between the sellers you will get good prices, high quality and the selection is huge. You are able to buy everything from fresh seafood, tasty meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, spices and flowers. While strolling over the market, you’ll be offered pieces of mango, jackfruit, strawberries etc. from all sides. Don’t be shy to accept these “fruit samples”, you won’t be asked to pay for them. Bargaining is also perfectly acceptable, normally you get the best prices a few hours after opening.

What time: It starts early in the morning and ends around 1pm
